9 Fun & Unique Baby Shower Themes

Brianna Kozlarek / Monday May 13, 2019




“One of our favorite baby shower themes is Into The Woods! Start by creating a centerpiece that is your version of a woodland clearing made of moss and lots of little plants and petite flowers with sturdy stems.  Purchase a selection of small forest animals like hedgehogs, skunks, foxes, owls, field mice, bunnies. Find little animals that are soft and flocked with sweet little faces. Place them along the mossy centerpiece as if they are making their way to a baby shower! Make tiny wrapped presents that you can either pin To one of their paws or wire into their wings, so that it looks like they are carrying presents to the baby shower. In the middle of the centerpiece use dollhouse furniture to create a baby shower vignette and ‘destination’ for the animals. All of the food should be thematic and be set and served with the woodland theme in mind. Salads sprinkled with fresh edible flowers, cheeseboards laden with sliced figs, honeycomb, and dried fruit, mushroom quiche, roasted carrots. The possibilities when using this charming baby shower are endless!” – Merryl Brown, President and Creative Director of Merryl Brown Events. Images via Etsy, Brit and Merryl Brown Events.



 If your style is more bohemian than classic, consider a cute “Ciao Bella!” theme. Bonus points if your baby’s name is Bella or Isabelle! Decorate with bohemian blush and ivory pillows, lots of macramé, and of course, champagne & desserts! Image via Nicole Hill Photography.



With Kim Kardashian’s recent CBD baby shower for baby #4, it’s no doubt that soon-to-be mamas have been inspired to take the Zen & relaxing route when planning their celebration! We’re thinking charcuterie boards with CBD-infused cheeses, crystal readings, sound baths and take-home goodies with products like Cured Nutrition’s cured spices and nighttime supplements.

How cute is a “Blue Jean Baby” theme for a baby boy?! We love this theme, inspired by the one Ali Fedotowsky threw for her baby boy! There are countless ways to incorporate denim into your event to make for an adorable baby shower. Try braiding strips of denim for a photo backdrop, including jean pockets on each place setting, and wrapping floral containers in pieces of ripped denim!

We love a jungle theme – have you seen the AMAZING first birthday Kunbi threw for her baby boy? You must! Create a mini African safari tablescape that is lush with greenery – ferns, monstera leaves, interesting grasses.  Place charming safari animals throughout the greenery to set the theme. Use monstera leaves as placemats, serve tall glasses of iced tea with sprigs of fresh mint. Place groupings of potted trees by your table and wire monkeys from the tree branches and exotic birds peeking out between the leaves as well. Serve a lovely cake embellished with jungle cats, use antique luggage as your cake riser, use pith helmets and binoculars as thematic props. Create a bar with a big silver tray laden with sparkling water, fresh lemonade, bowls of organic berries, fresh mint, sliced citrus and an a crystal ice bucket brimming with ice. A silver julep cup with animal print straws will finish off the look perfectly!” – Merryl Brown, President and Creative Director of Merryl Brown Events. Photo via Elle Audrey New York and @budecorphotos.


Another song-inspired theme, this time perfect for a baby girl. This theme is all about going for all things girly – Think flower crowns, cotton candy photo backdrops, and rosé cocktails! Photo via Sanaz Photography.



What could be sweeter than a Swan Lake baby shower? The stunning Swan Lake baby shower by Makini Regal Designsis just to die for. Beautiful pinks, creams and all the girly princess details you would want for a perfect baby girl shower.


You had us at tacos. But seriously, this is such a fun and unique theme! Perfect for a summer shower where you can break out the margs, a piñata and alllll the guac! The decor details are too cute with cactus cookies, colorful balloons and bright table runners. Taco about a good time 😉 Via Haute Off the Rack
